Hendrix pairs a rigorous academic experience with a tight knit community that made me feel right at home. The school places a premium on critical thinking, writing ability, and multidisciplinary, liberal arts education. Its Odyssey Program provided me with the tools and opportunities I needed pursue novel academic and professional development. The school did a terrific job of encouraging growth and nurturing my progress along the way. Hendrix’s faculty and staff are top tier professionals, but they are also deeply engaged in student interests and wellbeing. I had a terrific experience!

I love Hendrix! The campus culture is great, and there are tons of things to get involved with. The administration and teachers are amazing as well. While the traditional dorms are old and a bit run down, they are still vital to campus. Your freshman dorm becomes part of your school pride. The events on campus are fun and inclusive. School-sponsored parties are held at least once a month, and if those aren’t your thing there often alternative events going on. The campus is gorgeous, especially in fall and spring. Everyone is there to learn, but the environment feels more encouraging than competitive. Students push one another to be better. The school puts a focus on mental health as well, encouraging students to take care of themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. Orientation week is one of the most fun weeks of the year, and the student leaders are awesome.
Hendrix intrigued me from my first visit. From the prestigious campus, a personal visit from the President Tsutsui himself while visiting with an advisor, and the challenging education Hendrix provides, it still has a sense of home. The Odyssey program incorporates hands-on experience, while the internships truly excite me. The opportunity is an elevated way to learn and to participate actively in your education. The student:professor ratio is great because you get one-on-one experience to help drive your success. It is remarkable to me how Hendrix strives to make sure everyone succeeds. I would love to call this place home.
